The most recent trouble he found himself in was on April 9, 2022 when he was arrested for “burglary, two counts of trespassing and lastly disturbing the peace,” according to Page Six.
TMZ reports that Deezan forced himself into a privately-owned Maryland nursing facility and refused to leave when tried to break into a patient’s room before he was removed from the facility and arrested. Deezan showed up at the facility earlier in the day, which is why the facility called the police when he returned that night.
He is being held at an Allegany County, Maryland detention center.
